Rahmah  Term Image (ar-Raḥmah) Script Image
(Language:  Arabic)
Alternate Spellings:
Short Description: Divine Mercy
Long Description: The same root RHM is to be found in both the Divine names ar-Raḥmān (the Compassionate, He whose Mercy envelops all things) and ar-Raḥīm (the Merciful, He who saves by His Grace). The simplest word from this same root is raḥīm (matrix), whence the maternal aspect of these Divine Names.
